Aquinas: reason vs. revelation

Monday, January 28, 2019
    Feast of Thomas Aquinas, Priest, Teacher of the Faith, 1274
    When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
    —Luke 3:21-22 (NIV)
    The end of all my labors has come. All that I have written appears to me as much straw after the things that have been revealed to me.
    ... Thomas Aquinas (1225?-1274), Butler’s Lives of the Saints [1756], Alban Butler & Michael J. Walsh, Burns & Oates, 1956, reprint, HarperCollins, 1991, p. 29 (see the book)
    See also Luke 3:21-22; Isa. 42:1; Matt. 12:18; 17:5; Luke 9:34-35; John 8:29; 1 Pet. 2:4-5; 2 Pet. 1:17-18
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have permitted us to know You.
